Heterotopic Ossification

Uncommon manifestation that typically occurs following trauma or surgery. Most common postsurgically about hip flexors. Best diagnostic clue is an amorphous, ill-defined, immature, soft-tissue bone formation, subsequent ossific maturation. Bone scan is used to monitor for active progression. Surgery is delayed for symptomatic cases until lesion is quiescent.
